fish uses the shell and various commands, or perl, to do the transfer. 
See the kde doc linked below. It seems the busybox implementations of 
the shell parts don't quite behave as it expects, and one or more of the 
required perl modules isn't installed by default. We see similar shell 
behaviour in some of the init scripts where, for example, busybox sed 
doesn't support one of hte switches used by the init script.
